Join us for a three-day programme of events and online showcase, as we explore new models of international engagement, celebrate the creativity and activism of UAL students, staff, and alumni, and speculate on creative futures through an expanded understanding of Europe as place, space, and idea.

Together in Europe: Creative Communities for Change is an online exhibition and series of events that considers our past, present and future relationship with Europe. In a post-Brexit world, facing the multiple challenges of COVID-19, climate change and racial and social inequalities, how can we work together as a creative community for positive change? Showcasing a wide range of innovative projects from key figures at UAL, alongside voices from our valued European partners. The programme will look for answers to these global challenges. Online showcase launches on 18 September 2021. Online lunchtime event series will take place at 1-2pm (BST) between 21-23 September 2021. 1-2pm, 21 September: Join Mick Finch, Laura Martelloni, and Adam Thorpe as they discuss T-Factor: Unleashing future-facing urban hubs through culture and creativity-led strategies of transformative time. 1-2pm, 22 September: Join the debate with a selected panel of UAL alumni from across Europe, chaired by Dr Nicky Ryan, as they share lived experiences studying and working in Europe. 1-2pm, 23 September: On this final day of our event series, we will look ahead and consider how our relationship with Europe will develop in a post-Brexit landscape.
